This is hipster-hop with impeccable flair, the two members riffing off each other with the sort of twin-brained camaraderie that only true friendship can yield.

There’s truly a smattering of everything, and Paris Texas pull it all off with an effortless style. Hype never lies.

Boy Anonymous is a stellar debut, refreshingly difficult to categorize, an uninhibited and audaciously revisionist project.

Gigwise

The project has an electrifying cohesion that makes the eight tracks addicting to dissect. BOY ANONYMOUS radiates playful creativity and oozes a honeyed venom that keeps you hooked.

Like shadows looming large on a wall, the music is amplified by its mystery—the duo’s stylistic versatility makes them seem capable of almost anything.

Loud and Quiet
Their sound comes with the accessibility and charm of a bedroom recording project but arrives packaged with the scope and ability of something with much larger potential.

Whether or not this is just a rock phase they’ll evolve out of, it feels like Paris Texas’ style is unique enough that it’s worth keeping an eye on.

OK BUT THESE GUYS ARE LITERALLY DRIPPING WITH POTENTIAL!!

Much in the vein of their contemporaries such as BROCKHAMPTON, JPEGMAFIA, Injury Reserve and Jean Dawson. Paris Texas have emerged as a duo to be reckoned with within the experimental hip hop scene.

This is a promising debut from this new hip hop group and I think this leaves them with a lot to build off of to take their next record to the next level. I enjoy their incorporation of alt rock in their music and I think it really brings the energy up in their music. I'll definitely be looking out for more Paris Texas in the future.

Favorite tracks: CASINO, PACK 4 DA LOW, SITUATIONS, HEAVY METAL, FORCE OF HABIT
Least favorite: BETTER DAYS

Louie Pastel and Felix consist of the latest upcoming duo trying to make a name for themselves with slightly left-field pop rap. For one reason or another (most likely due to big-name management), the duo has quickly soared with a handful of singles like "HEAVY METAL", "FORCE OF HABIT" and "SITUATIONS". So, let's see how the duo deal with their first real studio project!

This was a whole lot of fun for me. Sure, it's pretty rough here and there and the duo ... read more

Paris Texas show they have a refreshing vision but lack the artistic maturity to turn most of it into a pleasant experience and regularly sabotage their ideas with a weak vocal performance or cheap sounding instrumentals.
